Evaluation and Planning

Evaluation and Planning

Come prepared for your digital transformation journey

At Altoros, every project we tackle starts with an evaluation and planning phase. We offer the strategic advice, guidance, and technical expertise required to assess the current state of your IT infrastructure, elicit requirements, detect limitations, provide recommendations on suggested improvements, and spot opportunities for growth.

Gathering requirements and determining objectives

Whatever encourages you to fast-track to a digital-native culture today—the need for speed, necessity to cut costs, or commitment to keep up with the changing market needs—you always start from where your yesterday’s technological decisions took you to. Cloud architects at Altoros will thoroughly analyze the current state of your infrastructure and technology landscape to gather functional and operational requirements, see how they align with the current business goals, and propose a technological solution.

  • Configuration-as- code for platform components, backing services and applications

Monitoring

  • Full-stack deployment monitoring
  • Custom parsing rules, dashboards, and alerts

  • Compliance with industry security standards (HIPAA, PCI DSS, etc.)
